Just a note to any Mandrake users reading this: by default you will be running something called supermount that will mount your CD when you try to access /mnt/cdrom. If you are having troubles like this, then try disabling supermount first.

Oh, and I like your sig too. It reminds me of a completely illogical car bumper sticker I saw once: Save a cow, eat a vegetarian
